Axero President and Co-founder, Tim Eisenhauer, shares some advice in Money magazine – Millions of Americans Call in Sick the Monday After the Super Bowl.
Here’s what employers can do about it.
Expect your office to be a bit emptier come 9 a.m. Monday.
According to a 2008 report, over 1.5 million workers will call in sick the day after the Super Bowl, and millions more will be late. Maybe it’s the reported 325 million gallons of beer Americans will consume — or the 1.3 billion chicken wings. Whatever the case, that’s a lot of lost productivity.
So what can employers do to ensure the day isn’t a wash? One expert says you could punish those who had a bit too much fun Sunday night—or throw a party instead.
Tim Eisenhauer, the president of Axero Solutions and a workplace collaboration expert, says it could benefit employers to embrace the sluggishness and “nurse the hangovers.”
